Get ready for “The Gronks”

Gronks Getty Images

When reports surfaced last year that the Gronkowski family had hired William Morris endeavor “to develop a TV show,” those reports quickly were shot down.

Regardless, a TV show has been developed.

According to Deadspin, it’s an animated show.  And there’s a sizzle reel consisting of the Gronkowskis being the Gronkowskis, but no actual animation.   A pair of guys named Henry Penzi and Wayne Carmona are reportedly pitching the show, and the plan is to put the pedal to the metal in the offseason.

The Gronkowskis consist of five brothers (Pats tight end Rob and two others with NFL experience) and patriarch Gordy.  And someone from Family Guy could be on the writing team.

While the Gronks aren’t Italian, here’s hoping that the show has the same overall vibe as The Goomba’s.

    Roses are red

    I’d rather watch the show
    “Honey boo boo”

    Names that end in “ski” and “wicz” are typically Polish. I think a cartoon about Pollocks would be plenty funny :)

    Man you trolls just wait for any Patriots related posts before you have enough guts to drop your hot pockets and come out from your mothers basement don’t you?

    Enjoy your 2-5 Redskins, loser.

    Patriots should invent a show called “Spygate” where they spy on people’s teams practices and cheat to win.. Wait that already happened?

  8. allday420ap says: Oct 29, 2013 7:25 PM

    Id rather watch Lockup: Hernandez edition

  9. jaxhotspur11 says: Oct 29, 2013 7:25 PM

    It’s OK to say the Goomba’s, but it’s not OK to say Redskins. Got it.

  10. Patskrieg dot com says: Oct 29, 2013 7:27 PM

    Love Gronk. This looks dumb.

  11. lanman11 says: Oct 29, 2013 7:28 PM

    What does this have to do with changing the Redskins name, not because of offenses real or imagined, but because of how much they suck arse…..

  12. thestrategyexpert says: Oct 29, 2013 7:30 PM

    Wow never heard of The Goombas, you learn something new every day. Thanks a lot for wasting some of my memory space on that clip!

    Not sure what to make of this, is there an actual plot besides partying and schenanigans or are they like a mystery team? Maybe a bunch of entrepreneurs and every episode they come up with a genius plan to make a billion dollars so they can buy their own family NFL team? Or does he and his family have the secret identity of protecting Earth from aliens while balancing football and party life?

    It has to be one of those, I just know it!

  13. whitecastleisafoodgroup says: Oct 29, 2013 7:31 PM

    Just another reason I’m glad we cancelled cable and went over-the-air HDTV.

    Sounds awful. So I’m sure it will be a success.

  15. thegreatgabbert says: Oct 29, 2013 7:32 PM

    While the Gronks aren’t Italian, they did live in the neighborhoods the Italians vacated when they moved up town.

  16. justintuckrule says: Oct 29, 2013 7:35 PM

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    I’ll watch the show because
    even if you hate the Pats, Gronk is one funny, entertaining dude!

  17. tinbender2000 says: Oct 29, 2013 7:37 PM

    Zero Superbowls since 1992 #Snydersbravehearts

  18. justintuckrule says: Oct 29, 2013 7:38 PM

    Cmon….a cartoon of Gronk doing his slamdance with a bunch of cartoon porn stars is not funny to you people??? How about an episode where all the Gronks bust A.H. out of jail? That’s gold, Jerry…GOLD!

    Patriots are insecure because they are
    #CHEATERS
    #SPYGATE (0-2 in SB’s since no cameras)
    18-1 CHOKERS
    WELKER made BRADY now BRADY sucks and is among the worst QB’s in the league
    all pats players are made of glass
    They are the worst 6-2 team in NFL history

  22. kibblesnvick says: Oct 29, 2013 7:59 PM

    I hope every single one of them dies in a fiery plane crash.

  23. patsfansknowitall says: Oct 29, 2013 7:59 PM

    The average IQ of patriots fans is around 80 and gronks comes in under that. Therefore it will be a hit in cheatriot-ville.

    Nope, it didn’t. Taping practices was a made-up crap allegation that was retracted on the front page of the rag newspaper that made it up on the eve of a Super Bowl, 5 months after spygate was finished.

    gordy and dan were at my work for a few weeks last summer doing a roadshow event where they sold exercise equipment. they look like gigantic meatheads but they were all friendly and easy to talk to. they told me one of their other brothers works with them too, but at the time he was at the cleveland browns training camp.
    nice that rob has something to fall back on if his career is shortened and he blows thru his millions

    You guys are championing name changes for sports teams based on racial injustice yet you allow this “walt” dude to post the “P” word on a national forum. We Poles have stood for this type of treatment long enough. We will respond when we figure out the best strategy to deal with this. Probably won’t be more than 3-4 years, tops. I wonder if his post is actionable. I feel like a victim here. Won’t someone please help?

    By the way, you spelled the “P” word wrong.

    We’ll never know about the show that was “Spygate” because Goodell cancelled it before we could watch it by destroying the tapes.

    And all the satellite and cable companies are wondering why people are dropping their service they want you to keep paying out the ass for junk like this I’m sure fox network is waiting to add it to their crappy animations lineup like somebody said earlier I go ota to get my channels and I find myself not missing the extra channels

    Perfect microcosm of the Patriots fanbase! The hot pockets and moms basement was stolen from a South Park episode, so its cheating. And another Pats fan loves the cheating. Uncle Rog Rog destryoed the tapes bc NE fans are fair weather. The pats hold the record for the most consecutive blackouts at 17, thats over 2 seasons with out a sellout and now are the 2nd or 3rd most profitable franchises, why kill the golden goose when you know you need to win to put fans in the seats? Worst fans in sports #facts.. for you.

  36. drewzducks says: Oct 29, 2013 9:34 PM

    If Gronk is the star will it be featuring a cast of casts ?

  37. shaundolphinsfan23 says: Oct 29, 2013 9:35 PM

    Great. Now we have to hear about this guy even more. As if that’s what we needed.

    Wrong!!!!! Check your fact dufus there are still facts of taping closed practices by the CHEATERS that are still proven to this day. No Super Bowl since SpyGate is also prove enough.Patriots are Cheaters.

    While the Gronks aren’t Italian, the two shady hucksters pitching the show, Penzi and Carmona, probably are.

  46. ilovefoolsball says: Oct 30, 2013 12:07 AM

    Reality tv and shows based off of celebrities are truly “The Powers That Be” means of controlling the populace to mind numbing apathy where we are in a perpetual state of escapism so they can do whatever they want to us.

    Things in this country are way out of control and you know it when it spills over into our sports leagues. All this show is going to do for Gronk and his family is absolutely ZERO and he will become a pahria in the lockeroom like Romo did with all his distractions with the women he was dating

  49. nookers says: Oct 30, 2013 7:57 AM

    All this because hes sick of listening to Brady cry in the huddle?

  50. geniusry says: Oct 30, 2013 9:27 AM

    Am I the only person that cannot stand this guy (family)? He’s a phenomenal player but this “goofy” thing is irritating.

  51. cmstrick says: Oct 30, 2013 10:04 AM

    I saw enough of the Gronks when he was drafted, and his entire family stayed on stage through the next 3 draft picks…
